Lucy Dollens Writes for Indiana Lawyer on Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana’s 2023 Amicus Activity


Indianapolis — Lucy Dollens, an Indianapolis-based partner in the Quarles & Brady Litigation & Dispute Resolution Group, wrote an article for Indiana Lawyer about the Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana’s (DTCI) 2023 amicus activity.

In the article, Dollens, a member of the DTCI amicus committee and board of directors, summarizes DTCI’s 2023 amicus cases and highlights that they have participated in issues of significant interest to the defense bar.

Below is an excerpt:

This year, the Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana participated as amicus in a variety of issues of significant interest to the defense bar. Although DTCI is unable to become involved in every case in which its participation is requested, the Amicus Committee and the board of directors carefully consider each request and welcome the opportunity to work with defense counsel across the state on important issues of Indiana law before Indiana’s appellate courts.

Daniels v. Drake

In the matter of Daniels v. Drake, Cause No. 22A-CT-00068, the trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the owners of a dog (a Great Dane) that, while never having exhibited dangerous tendencies before, bit a FedEx delivery driver. In opposition to the entry of summary judgment, the plaintiff submitted an affidavit of a canine behavioral expert and animal control officer, who claimed that Great Danes have a natural propensity to be territorial, which might endanger the safety of a stranger when the stranger approaches it on the owners’ property.
